The Martini Shot is a seven-piece, horn-powered, pop-rock cover and original band based out of southern Colorado. The Martini Shot has released four original projects with major influences of Barenaked Ladies, Reel Big Fish, 311, and many others. The band’s covers are high energy pop tunes in which they add horns to give it the “Martini Shot flavor”. The name, “Martini Shot,” refers to the Hollywood slang term for the last shoot of the day.

Chicano Heat is a high energy band with strong vocals, excellent harmony, stellar showmanship and stage presence made up of six seasoned musicians. They play a variety of music from Tex-Mex, New Mexico, Oldies, Country, and much more. They pride themselves on being able to take listeners on a “trip to Texas” as they play favorite tunes from artists such as Little Joe y la Familia, Jay Pedez, Latin Breed, and La Differencia.

August 4 – That Eighties Band

Back by popular demand, That Eighties Band will rock Pueblo. Based in Denver, That Eighties Band is one of the most popular 80’s tribute bands in America. The group has performed at over 1,200 concerts including past clients of Google, Disney, Pepsi, The Denver Broncos, and many more.
